Project Title: Public Cluster Support

Award number: 0209
Project Leader: Brian Abraham
Report Period: final

Project Description:

This project provides continued funding for free black & white laser
printing in all ITS supported computer clusters and continued support of
the assistant facilities manager, Jim Sellner and hardware technicians.

Progress toward Milestones:

  • 12 New laser printers were purchased and installed in August 2002
  • Authentication implemented in clusters - August 2002

Comments:

ITS contributed $5,982 to public clusters due to greater than anticipated
expenses last year (fy 2001-2002). This was slightly greater than the
remaining expenses which resulted in a carryover of $449.23. ITS left
this $449.23 in the account as an extra match for this year (fy
2002-2003). We estimated the unspent amount at mid-year to be $3,000
however we have $5,189.36 left at the end of the year (fy2002-2003). We
request and recommend that this unspent amount be left in the account to
help pay for emergencies such as the extra wages needed to fix clusters
after the rash of viruses and worms we have already had this year. Also
we need to upgrade the hubs in clusters from 10MB hubs to 10/100 MB switches.
